Newcross Healthcare wins exclusive contract with Cornwall Care

Providing excellent healthcare to an increasingly elderly population is a challenge that all care providers now face, but thanks to a new 2-year deal between Newcross Healthcare and Cornwall Care that challenge will be faced head-on.

The population of Cornwall is not only gradually increasing but also changing demographically. In line with national trends, Cornwall's population is getting older as average life expectancy continues to rise and people choose the county as their destination of choice in which to retire.

Helping to tackle the staffing issues faced by many healthcare providers in the county is Newcross’ Truro and Plymouth branches. Since 2007, the branches have fostered excellent relationships with Cornwall Cares 17 care homes as their pool of nurses and care assistants regularly cover shifts and demonstrate the quality and professionalism of Newcross healthcare on a daily basis.

Mandy Hamilton, Regional Operations Manager for the South West, said; “It was the dedication to excellent standards and expertise of the Truro and Plymouth branches that played a pivotal role in Newcross being chosen. I’m delighted that Newcross is now the primary provider for Cornwall Care.”

Geoff White, Operations Director at Newcross, added; “We have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Cornwall Care. This relationship has been built on our ability to provide a quality service that delivers the very best local healthcare professionals right across the county. This localised service underpinned by expertise and dedication means that Cornwall Care is safe in the knowledge that they will receive the very best service. Winning the contract was a fantastic team effort, and it was the professionalism of our staff that saw us beat our competitors.”

The new contract means that for the next 2 years Newcross will be Cornwall Care’s first port of call when they require trained healthcare professionals to cover shifts.

Newcross co-founder and CEO, Stephen Pattrick said, “We are delighted to continue the fantastic partnership we have with Cornwall Care. The 2-year agreement with an option to extend to 3 years shows the trust and belief Cornwall Care has in our excellent service offerings.”
